Next football season, the annual Pro Bowl game moves from Honolulu to Orlando and the Walt Disney World Resort will get in on the fun.
The National Football League’s all-star game game is held the week before the Super Bowl championship game between teams of players that are voted on by their peers. This year the game will be held January 29, 2017 at the Camping World Stadium, formerly the Citrus Bowl.
Teams will practice at the ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex, Disney’s state of the art sports facility, but if fans want to get a glimpse of the players, they should head to the Magic Kingdom, where players will parade down Main Street. Pro Bowl-themed events are also being planned at Disney Springs.
Tickets for the Pro Bowl go on sale in November.
